A: Pours a very viscous, dark black, can't see through it at all. Very small dark red/copper head that dissipates quickly leaving a nice copper colored lace. Has huge alcohol legs
S: Super sweet. Lots of candy sugar/toffee/caramel as well as a small amount of a burnt espresso. Slightly like soy sauce and bourbon also.
T: Lots of bourbon and sweetness. Also, for it being 17.42%, it's surprisingly balanced. Get the alcohol a bit at the end, as well as some molasses.
M: Very smooth, velvety, with some intense heat on the way down.
Overall this is quite nice. One of the really great bourbon Imp stouts out there right now. I'm going to have to try to get ahold of another bottle so I can age this beast.

1803rd Review on BA
Bottle to Avery Snifter
App- This right out of the gate was one of the more dense and black stouts I have seen. A lush pour with a creamy look behind it with a dark brown head that was a bit ringed. The edges were dark brown and the inside was a lighter tan.
Smell- This had a lot going on in the nose. A big chocolate bomb with a good amount of oak, vanilla and some oats with a big amount of whispy booze.
Taste- A very sweet drinking stout. A big amount of molasses and bourbon with some sweeter vanilla on the first sip. To me this was a bigger and sweeter version of Mephistopheles. This was a bit one dimensional to me and over the top with booze vs. layered.
Mouth- A good medium body. A bit thin for the ABV and size of this beer. A fairly creamy almost thin medium carbonation. A good amount of sweet dark fruits remain on the finish.
Drink- Good beer, wanted and expected more of this one. As I mentioned. A bit one dimensional with more bourbon and molasses vs a backing flavor.
